Proper Technique for Measuring your Dog for a MIM Safe Variocage
Here are some helpful hints when measuring your dog for a MIM Safe Variocage.
Please note that it is important to measure your dog first before measuring your vehicle. Proper fit for your dog is vital to your dog’s comfort and safety.
Hold the measuring tape in one hand and place the free end at the front edge of your dog’s nose pulling it straight back to the base of his tail. This will give you the length measurement for your dog. You will need to add Three (3) inches to allow the dog room to turn around in the MIM Safe Variocage.
Place the tape at the top of the shoulder and measure down to the floor to get a proper height measurement. Add Three (3) inches to give the dog plenty of room if he wants to stand up.
Be sure to estimate your dog’s adult size if you order his crate while he is still growing. You can check his breed standard to get an estimate of what size he will reach at maturity to make sure your crate is large enough.
Proper measuring will assure that your pet can comfortably stand, sit, turn around, and lie down in his cage. You can always add a divider panel in the MIM Safe Variocage Double if necessary, and reserve the remaining space until your pet grows into it.
As a general rule, if you’re not sure which size to select, choose a larger size.
Check to see if your vehicle has a raised sill at the rear cargo entrance. If the sill is raised, you should put something flat under the cage so its doors can open correctly. We recommend rigid foam board insulation to minimize interference with your car’s crumple zone. The floor of the cargo area should be flat.
1. Measure the narrowest usable area across the floor of the cargo area where you would position the crate (A)
(Note: The narrowest usable area is often between the rear wheel wells or at the bottom of the cargo door entrance.)
2. Measure the top of the cargo area which is typically narrower than the usable floor space (B)
(Note: The left and right side of the dog cage are angled. Total cage width is approximately 4″ narrower at the top.)
3. Measure the usable length of the cargo floor from the back seat to the door sill (C)
(Note: The front and back of the dog cage are angled. Total cage length is approximately 12″ narrower at the top.)
4. Measure the height from the cargo floor to the lowest point at the top of the cargo door entrance (D)
(Note: Be sure to measure the shortest point which is often at the sides of the cargo entrance not in the middle.)
